Abstract: Charge carrier transport in single-layer graphene with one-dimensional charged defects is studied theoretically. Extended charged defects, considered an important factor for mobility degradation in chemically vapor-deposited graphene, are described by a self-consistent Thomas-Fermi potential. A numerical study of electronic transport is performed by means of a time-dependent real-space Kubo approach in honeycomb lattices containing millions of carbon atoms, capturing the linear response of realistic size systems in the highly disordered regime. Our numerical calculations are complemented with a kinetic transport theory describing charge transport in the weak scattering limit. The semiclassical transport lifetimes are obtained by computing scattered amplitudes within the second Born approximation. The transport electron-hole asymmetry found in the semiclassical approach is consistent with the Kubo calculations. In the strong scattering regime, the conductivity is found to be a sublinear function of electronic density and weakly dependent on the Thomas-Fermi screening wavelength. We attribute this atypical behavior to the extended nature of one-dimensional charged defects. Our results are consistent with recent experimental reports. © 2013 American Physical Society.
